The effect can be of course scaled to any size, rotated, and translated in the scene as you need it (so that you can use it at any angle, horizontal or vertical, etc.). More than one effect can be added too.

You can change the color, opacity, and luminescence to any value manually in the surface tab or use the included adjustment presets.
